Update: More than enough time has passed that I think it is fair to name names. It is Jeff Galin / Electronics Service Labs in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Via Google maps I was able to easily see the "Makris" diner is right next door. I called that number, and was lucky enough to get the owner and that she was nice enough to at least talk with me. She was only able to tell me that car activity looks normal at ES Labs, but she does not know Jeff or any staff there.
I have left at least two voicemails for Jeff and at least two email. I have called his number at least once a day - every day - for the past month. He has not responded in any way, and neither he nor anyone else has ever picked up the phone.
As another participant in this discussion pointed out, one other person reported the same problem back in October 2017, but did eventually get satisfaction. That is no consolation to me, though, when I cannot even get anyone there to acknowledge they still have my receiver.
I appreciate the "your" in place of the "you’re" used by d2girls and ebm.
Big difference between your toast vs. you’re toast. Words do matter.
Plus, using the two correctly proves you went to grade school.
Your, you’re, their, there, they’re, simple stuff really.
Sorry about the rant, personal pet peeve time.
For the benefit of anyone who might have the misfortune of being in the same or a similar situation, here are a two links I have found - in addition to opening a complaint with the Better Business Bureau:
I finally got my TA-4A back.
To review, all I was trying to do from mid October 2018 to the end of December 2018 was get Jeff to reply and confirm with me that he actually did receive my unit.
During that time:
- he would not return any of my 3 voicemails
- he would not reply to any of my 3 emails
- I called the ES Labs number at least once a day, every business day, for 3 months. He never picked up the phone even once.
- he failed to respond to my complaint via the Better Business Bureau, and to the point where the BBB simply had to close the case.
- he failed a respond to a letter from an attorney explaining to he could be found liable of civil theft.
After the letter from the attorney at the end of December, I received an email from Jeff to tell me the work was done and the amount of the invoice was due. So basically he only contacted me once I owed HIM money for the service. When I had not replied within 24 hours, he sent a follow-up email to confirm I received the invoice, which also rubbed me really wrong in light of his refusal to ever respond to me.
It's a shame, because the service of the Nak TA-4A seems to be just as good as what I experienced with him in 2004. Still, I will never send anything his way again. It's just not worth the aggravation of someone who will not respond and you can never speak with.
